VOODOO DOUGHNUT

VOODOO DOUGHNUT

I’m often on the hunt for a good doughnut. It makes for a great breakfast item, snack before lunch, snack after lunch, snack before dinner… you get the idea. My friend Andrew is also a fellow doughnut connoisseur and mentioned that Voodoo Doughnut had set up a shop in Denver. Started in Portland, Oregon, Voodoo Doughnut is known for serving up not only classic doughnuts (like glazed, chocolate frosted, etc.) but also some doughnuts with wacky toppings, like cereal, candy, cookies, or even bacon! I hadn’t heard of the shop before visiting Denver, but we decided to head over there on the way out of the city driving up towards Mount Evans. Continue reading

I remember a little while back talking to some friends that visited the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in D.C., and they mentioned one of the cool things in there was the American Indian café.

Both my friends Andrew and Angie spoke highly of the place, and I was up for branching out to try something new. So, on my first night visiting them in Denver, we walked over to the restaurant to grab a late dinner. Continue reading

LITTLE MAN ICE CREAM

LITTLE MAN ICE CREAM

In the weeks that led up to my going out to Denver, I had been talking with my friend Andrew about what we should check out in the area. One of the things that he mentioned repeatedly was that “we had to check out Little Man.” I wasn’t really sure what that meant at first; once he mentioned the words “ice cream,” however, then he certainly had my attention. It’s hard to miss Little Man if you’re driving around: the store itself looks like a giant milk jug planted right in the middle of the neighborhood. We rolled up to the store around 5 p.m. that day, and Andrew remarked how incredible it was that there wasn’t the usual long line that snaked up the street. Awesome! Continue reading
